Epic Games has released a new update for Fortnite that adds a new weapon, brings back a vaulted weapon, and removes a couple of weapons.
Following the update, players will have access to the suppressed sniper rifle. This new weapon can be found in epic and legendary variants and trades power for stealth with only 100/105 base damage.
The update also brings back the dual pistols, removes the six shooter, and removes the uncommon, common, and rare versions of the burst assault rifle.
In addition to the above, a few balance changes have been made to the X-4 Stormwing and Boomboxes. The former has had its damage taken from structures increased, the spread of its machine gun increased, and its spawn chance decreased. While the later has had its drop rate, health, and duration reduced.
Finally, the update adds the Santa’s Little Helper and Popshot Shotgun to Save the World. Read the full patch notes here.
Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
